that's a wicked track. the fight scene in Grosse Point Blank is choreographed to it.

i'd also give a nod to a personal fav, "mexican radio" - i have no idea who did it but it's funny. and funky.

wasn't it called 'wet leatherette'? trying to remember who did it...10 minutes and the only words are 'wet leatherette' over and and over with funky, early industrial sounds popping away.

wasn't it by the one of the guys who went on to form bauhaus?
